Recently our customer's hotel in Patong was infected with Zepto ransomware.
The antivirus (Kaspersky) detected it (later) but it was not effective against this virus.
We have installed a backup system which runs on a Xeon server where all staff desktop PC's data are stored.
After infection our backup system restored the hotel's system as it was before the infection.
A backup system should always be in place and properly tested, it can restore system state and deleted files up to 180 days or more.
